I read over this patch, and generally it looks good. However, I think  
you can avoid the copy of gettimeofday, just by making sure  
HAVE_SYS_TIMEB_H is defined on Windows. That will fall into another  
case in the #if chain that will use _ftime, which should be defined  
on windows (I found this out from Harri Porten who apparently ported  
kjs to windows quite some time ago).

I think we'll have to add timegm for now, but it looks like TOT kjs  
in KDE doesn't use timegm at all, so we may be able to eliminate that  
once we merge more of their fixes.

Please send another patch that does the _ftime thing instead of
